We just met this year so our families just started getting to know each other. I love your beautiful family. Unfortunately loss is never easy and to console is just as difficult. Maria you and Mia are treasured by everyone you meet and even though this chapter of your life is going to challenge you I'm so happy your faith will strengthen you. My confessor Fr. Jim of St. Mary said to me once. Don't ask why me...why not me? Loss happens to all of us when we are best prepared to handle it. Scott is in heaven protecting you. Thankfully his suffering on Earth was short. I hope the Cabrini family can help you with whatever you need. Please know prayers are always flooding to you from everyone who heard your story. If you feel weak Jesus will carry you and our prayers will fortify your foundation. God Bless.

I went to St. Alfreds with Scott for grade school and even though many years have passed I still remember how his smile and personality were larger than life. I would like to express my deepest sympathies to his family, wife and daughter I pray for their comfort and healing in this most difficult time. Rest in Peace Scott.

My deepest sympathy to all of the family(s). Especially for Marie and Mia. Scott was 2 years ahead of me in school so I didn't really know him back then. However, him and Marie were our neighbors on Richard street for about 10 years. They are wonderful people. God must have needed an angel. He took one of the good ones. RIP Scott.

I met Scott only three of four times during visits to US and Hungary during meetings at NHK. Nevertheless, I will always remember him as a very kind, humble, funny and positive person. Remembering his positive attitude, I wish that more people become like him and I hope that his family will overcome all hurdles in the future.

Hope you find peace Scott and that you can still can take care of your family from the place you went now.

Scott was an amazing person. He made me laugh when we were together and brought me ice cream when my tonsils were taken out. He loved to dance too. I will never forget him.

It's so hard to believe I will never see Scott again in this life but I know he sure was met by many people who have passed before him and hopefully helped with his new journey. He will never be alone. Maria stay strong if not for you for Mia your precious little girl will need you more now than ever before. I love you so much and wish I could be there but circumstances won't let me at this time. Love you so much. Maria xoxoxo

Very sorry that we lost Scott a wonderful father,and husband. He will be missed.

Posted by Carmen Porter - Allen Park, MI - Friend   February 27, 2017

My memories of Scott back in elementary school were of him always being sarcastic and picking on me, probably because I am Sherrill's friend. At Truman he got a bit less sarcastic toward me, but could always make me laugh. That is what I will remember most, how funny he was. Mr. and Mrs. Persia I am so very sorry of the loss of your son. Shirley and Tim, I can't imagine the loss of my brother, so all I can do is hug you when I see you. Maria, the loss of a companion, I know first hand. I have been worried about you most of all, having gone thru this myself. I will pray for all of you. Scott I hope you are somewhere telling a joke or an anecdote because that is who you were. You brought joy wherever you were. May you rest forever in peace.
